Our friend Pennman built South River Model Works kit, Martin Machine Co., scratchbuilding half of the kit.

Pennman’s model is an excellent creation. His blog has 36 pages of the project, full of interesting and useful tips and techniques, and even history of the kit and the hobby.

Outstanding build. A lot to learn from this.

Thank you for the awesome replies to my build. Actually, the entire structure, including the foundation, was totally scratchbuilt by me. If anyone has any questions concerning the build or wishes any more pictures, I can add some to the story.
